    450 bushmaster

    I just purchased a 95 Mauser action ,450 heavy barrel and it kicks like a mule even with a muzzle brake,does anyone have any cast bullet loads I could try 250-300 cast.

    Loads are on the web. 4227 works very well.

    My ruger American 450 bushmaster shot a 1.1" group at a hundred yards using 35.5gr of h110 using ACCOWW with 2% pewter added, GC, and PC. Tried the same boolit and WQ it in ice water immediately after PC and it opened the group to 1.25" the BH was a point or two higher after wq

    We need pics of the 95 Mauser .450 BM. Does it feed well? Did you shorten the magazine?

    I have a Ruger American.

    I load a 295g Lyman bullet then powder coat and size to 454. It shoots oblong single hole groups with 4227 @ about 1850 fps.

    I'm looking to keep velocity around 1400 max.

    #9 is my new favorite in the 450!

    Accuracy is best yet and velocity altho not as fast as others is plenty!
